Kenyan actress Lupita Nyong’o not only made her Hollywood debut, acting alongside Brad Pitt in their movie,’12 Years a Slave’, but she also makes her Red Carpet Fashion Awards debut.
And what a magical debut it is.
Lupita took to the red carpet for the Toronto International Film Festival premiere on Friday evening wearing a stunning Prada white silk jersey gown with a gold sequin smocked bodice.
This makes me eat my words when I said Miuccia Prada’s red carpet gowns don’t wow me, because this took my breath away.
The look was complemented with dazzling jewel encrusted Prada clutch and gold Prada leather sandals, with flawless smooth skin accentuated with a deep berry lip colour and diamond encrusted earrings completing the look.
Micaela Erlanger, her stylist, played it so very right. I know I will remember this gown at the end of year honors.
I have a feeling that narrowing down ten BDOTW worthy looks on Sunday is going to be very difficult.
